I love to see the show of sunflowers in my garden in the fall. Close inspection of this flower head reveals a whole tiny garden of blooms.

The last few days have been very hectic. My mother is visiting , we have had an unusual amount of company,a wedding on saturday and a family get together on sunday. It has been a whirlwind of friends and family. And although I have had a permanent smile pasted to my face, being a good hostess has left little time for photography. This morning I woke before anyone was up, took my camera into the golden morning , and renewed my connection to nature. How did I get so lucky?

I have been very busy since we came home from the lake. Even though I should be doing my gardening and getting my yard ready for winter, I felt the creative urge... I just had to do something. Inspiration came from the 30s era material that my mom had given me a few years ago. Add to that an old photo that I found in a neat shop on Vancouver Island and a key from my collection. Collage with paper, paint and beeswax to a chunky canvas, and Ta da! Even though I thought that this would be just a bit of fun, I was surprised to find that the primitive nature and the anything goes factor made it even more personal to me.
